Somerset Arts Well is a Community Interest Company set up in 2019 to provide participatory music projects for families in and around Wells.  We work with the whole community and provide opportunities to sing and make music together. We firmly believe in the power of music to inspire and transform people. Music is for everyone and builds communities. We encourage people to come forward and dip their toes into one of our projects. No previous experience necessary!

We are three freelance music leaders with particular specialisms in leading community singing, Early childhood music and drumming. We have a mission to get more singing and music making onto social prescription as there are so many proven benefits to people's health and wellbeing. You can read more about us on our About page.

Engaging in musical activities offers many extra benefits such as developing important social-networks, building self-esteem and boosting confidence that then transcends into other areas of life. 

Our projects have been kindly supported by Somerset Skills and Learning, The Somerset Community Foundation and The Mendip Communities Fund.

Our first community singing group set up in 2019, this brought members of the community together in an intergenerational weekly singing session which always left everyone uplifted and energised for the week ahead. Older members enjoyed the company of babies and vice versa!
